Item description for John Wesley for the Twenty-First Century: Set Apart for Social Witness by John O. Gooch...

Gooch connects modern day readers with the 18th century world of John Wesley. This book is more than an academic or historical account of Wesley's life. It offers contemporary readers ways to connect to their Wesleyan heritage by comparing contemporary issues to topics Wesley addressed during his day. Wesley was deeply concerned with salvation of the individual, but Wesley also attended to needs that seem very current such as health care, poverty, slavery, and the need for growth as disciples of Christ through small group ministries. Each chapter includes questions for reflection to help readers understand the different dimension of the Wesleyan tradition.

Reviews - What do customers think about John Wesley for the 21st Century?

A Friendly Introduction  Apr 10, 2008
John Wesley for the 21st Century offers insights into contemporary living by looking at some of the problems of the 18th century--and their solutions. For example, health care was a problem because doctors were scarce. According to author John Gooch, John Wesley saw the need and wrote a basic medical text to train his preachers to care for the sick--and maybe churches could establish health clinics today. Or in a time when people were hurting financially and needed short-term loans to tide them over, Wesley's movement provided basic small loans--and maybe churches could think in terms of micro-loans today to those in need. Not just social ills, but other insights into contemporary life matters. A nice book for discussion in a group!
